    With Driveclub Bikes Evolution Studios have been able to surprise us all with no previous inkling we’d get to ride on two wheels, but when we did, we’ve been able to do so properly and from the start. That in itself is an improvement on the original game.

    New handling model shakes up a familiar game, and is well worth a look.

    Driveclub Bikes is fast'n'furious arcade motorbiking game in familiar Driveclub surroundings. The bikes are, well, bikey enough. [Dec 2015]

    For fans of the main game, this add-on is nigh on essential – and for everyone else, it deserves your attention at the very least.

    A solid arcade-racing game that delivers hours of fun with a well appreciated gameplay. The lack of bikes (only 12) is not necessarily a con due the great amount of events available in game. Buy it if you love DRIVECLUB or you’re looking for a good, racing game with bikes.

    Exactly what I was looking for – a bike racing game accessible to people who were overwhelmed by MotoGP or SBK series. [13/2015, p.71]

    DriveClub Bikes offers a nice and fun experience, thanks to the graphics and social challenges inherited by the original DriveClub. But don't even think of it if you are searching for realism and bike sensations.

DC BIKES is flat.Driveclub BIKES is basically its own game with 40+ unique tracks, it's own Tour, multiplayer, Sprint, and Challenge modes. DC BIKES is flat. Out. Fun. With 41 slated bikes from top manufacturers like Ducati, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Bimonta, Honda, and BMW your sure to find your favorite. Did i mention DC BIKES has its own separate platinum trophy as well?

    You can race all of the tracks from the original Driveclub game with bikes as well as the 48 new tracks that were added specifically for the BIKES expansion. At $14.99 there is no shortage of content and all of the fame earned in DC BIKES goes towards your DC profile and your club. You can customize your bikes and your leather suits to fit your own personal style. Each bikes can be leveled up and all new accolades have been created as well.

    The bikes handle much differently than the cars and each bike feels distinctly different. Leaning into turns and proper braking is essential in DC BIKES, Driveclub is not Need for Speed. As always the graphics are gorgeous and the framerate is very stable and smooth. I've experienced no glitches and the game has been an absolute joy and the perfect compliment to the standard game. The sense of speed is jaw dropping and the first person camera view is the best i've played in any racer. The game is very challenging but never cheap and it is always predicated on skill.

    At launch DC BIKES is already a great value but there will be plethora of free content and bikes added each month. I do enjoy racing games but i have never necessarily been a huge bike fan, but this game is just too much fun to turn down with its incredible visuals and addictive racing...oh and there's nothing like burning past your opponent and popping a wheelie or a stoppie while flying through the finish line line. Driveclub BIKES is a 10/10 for value and addictive gameplay.

    I'm so sorry this game is closed. If the 2nd series of the game came, it could really be a revolution.

The bikes look stunning - just like the rest of the game, there are a ton of Races and Events, it Looks and Plays like a dream.
    Driveclub is a bit of a "shallow" Racer - just plain, pure, arcade-style racing. No Tuning, no pro-Setups, no Crashs, no traffic - but instead of complaining of what is or may all be missing Id say go and better start enjoying this awesome Racer.
    You cant go really wrong with that pricetag alone - to Driveclub Fans and Biking Fans alike - this is a must buy

    OK if you want an honest review read this. Since I'm starting to see things like 9 and 10 someone has to come out and tell the truth :POK if you want an honest review read this. Since I'm starting to see things like 9 and 10 someone has to come out and tell the truth :P

    This is NOT a PROPER BIKES GAME, the physics and the handling are terrible. Yes, we know that the original driveclub is more balanced towards arcade style, and thats not everyones cup of tea, but this is not about arcade vs simulation. A racing game can be arcade style and still be tons of fun ( for instance Project Gotham Racing ), but this is was just a quick and dirty adaptation from the engine / physics they already have to sell it as a bikes game, and its just baaaaad.

    Physics and handling are terrible, do not expect anything near Ride or Motogp. It's just not right, the handling is too sensitive, unreal, annoying and in the end boring.

    Also, the balancing formula on the difficulty of the AI is not right, I can tell there are some varians like the lenght of the race that make the AI riders go faster or slower ( I know this is common in many racing games), but at some point if the race is long and you get a little left behind, no matter how fast and clean you race you can never catch up. Making some longer races impossible while shorter races are a lot easier.

    On the other hand, it does have some good things. (Which make this DLC fail even harder because it teases you with some good ingredients but the final mix is just not there):

    The graphics and the weather effects are pretty cool.

    Some races with some specific bikes like the Ducati desmosedici feel awesome and are real fun to play and replay.

    Having official street bikes is a really cool feature that we only had on the ps4 with Ride, even if some of the races and handling are real rubish.

    I'm aware of the price of this DLC, but come on, this is such a disapointment. This is such a shame, because I was really looking forwards to fun bikes game, even if it was short. I would rather have paid 70$ without hessitating for a longer proper version of this game instead of paying 15 for a quick, dirty, poor adaptation.
